System

DELL Latitude E6500 with Windows Vista Business
 

Problem

Your audio sound has a crackling problem. It cracks, skips, pops and makes noises on audio files. You cannot enjoy listening to sound anymore. It seems like you can not solve this problem by uninstalling and installing the drivers. A bios update and any other refreshing solutions didn't help.
 

Reason

This is actually neither a sound problem, nor a driver problem. This problem occurs most likely on Vista and it's software related.
 

Solution

Restart your DELL, keep pressing F2 until Bios comes up. Follow the following steps on your Bios:

1

System Configuration

>

Miscellaneous Devices

 

>

uncheck Enable eSATA Ports

 

2

Performance

>

Intel® SpeedStep™

 

>

uncheck Enable Intel® SpeedStep™

 

3

Virtualization Support

>

check Enable VT for Direct I/O
